Sydney Festival 2014: Parra Opening Party

DuckCome one, come all, Parramatta’s CBD will become one big party tonight! The Parra Opening Party will be a joyful, open-air street celebration that’s happening all around Riverside Theatres. Be ready for 10 days of spell-binding music, eye-popping magic and epic art installations that will keep you and the family entertained this January.

Kicking off at the new time of 6pm on Friday evening, cardboard box aficionados Boxwars take to Church Street with 30 locals parading their own creations, accompanied by acrobats and a soundtrack to spur them on to the mother of all Boxwars Battles in Prince Alfred Park. It’s crazy and chaotic and ridiculously good fun.

Also…the Rubber Duck is back! Created by Netherlands artist Florentijn Hofman, the Rubber Duck is due to make a splash at duck-feeding HQ in Parramatta (Parramatta river in Parramatta park between Pavilion Flat & Government Farm)
